You can check in dat manually to ePO

or create a scheduled task. Go to server task and create a repository pull task from http or ftp.

Go to system tree and create a client update task to update dat/engine and other signatures and schedule it to run daily or hourly.

As you suggested, i will create a Client update task. so the epo will try to update the clients in the system tree.

some of client will soon get expired in system tree, in that case will the client continue to receive latest DAT untill renewl

There 2 other ways to do this :

You can setup an agent handler in the DMZ , and let the endpoint update from there

You can configure the repositories so that the McAfee http is enabled . After the endpoint fail to connect to a valid repository they will used the last one whic should be the Mcafee updatezite
